There’s a hidden mode in Celeste called Cheat Mode. What is it, and how do you activate it?
What is Cheat Mode?
All of this is unlocked through natural game progression, namely by completing all Chapters and B-Sides. However, if you want to unlock those features prematurely, you can activate Cheat Mode.
Cheat Mode is distinct from the game’s Assist Mode, which can be toggled at any time through the file select screen. Assist Mode allows players to add modifiers to the game intended to make the gameplay experience less difficult.
How do you activate Cheat Mode?

If it worked, you should hear a sound effect, be taken back to the chapter select menu, and have this spiffy little ribbon on your save file:
